Product Overview

Six masterful children''s authors have become master playwrights in this collection of one-act plays that might just make you want to ACT OUT!

In "The Raven," Sharon Creech spoofs a publishing office while Susan Cooper shows the environment fighting back against overdevelopment in "The Dollop," Patricia MacLachlan puts a twist on detention in "The Bad Room" and Katherine Paterson gives us a new twist on a classic fairy tale in "The Billionaire and the Bird," Richard Peck''s "Effigy in the Outhouse" is the story of schoolboys doing their best to trick a spooky substitute while Avi''s "Not Seeing Is Believing" has words playing tricks on everyone.

With a star-studded lineup of writers there''s a stage full of drama, comedy, and great storytelling waiting behind these curtains!
